Unexplained Mysteries => Ghost hunters explore Teackle mansion

From Unexplained Mysteries:

A group of paranormal investigators think the legends of Teackle Mansion ghosts could be true, particularly in a part of the house where their equipment batteries died and they felt a cold spot.

Now I have a reason to visit Maryland.

Boston.com => Militia man prepares for standoff that, so far, isn’t coming

Brown and his wife, Elaine, were found guilty of tax evasion on Thursday. She returned to her son’s Massachusetts home to wait for sentencing on April 24. Ed Brown, meanwhile, holed up in his fortress-like home and skipped most of his federal tax trial.

Who says this sort of stuff only happens in Idaho, Texas and Oklahoma?

About: Paranormal Phenomena => What’s on the Far Side of the Moon?

About’s Paranormal Phenomena page has a fascinating write-up about the alien bases on the far side of the moon. (excerpted below)

It has long been a theory of some UFOlogists that the far side of the Moon could harbor a base for extraterrestrials. Presuming they come from a distant planet in some other solar system, they must have a base from which they can make their regular visits to the Earth. What better place than the far side of the Moon, which is perpetually hidden from sight?

You really have to wonder what’s really going on up there? Surely we’ve run the Nazis out by now.

The scion of an ancient Illuminati family, Zagami had a religious conversion (to Islam) last June and rebelled. He’d had enough of the horrifying Satanic, black magic rituals, mind control and torture that was going on inside the lodges, behind closed doors.

If this wasn’t alarming enough…

He says 666 is everywhere these days: “the Hebrew equivalent of our ”w“ is the letter ”vav“ or ”waw“. The numerical value of vav is 6. So the English ”www“ transliterated into Hebrew is ”vav vav vav“, which numerically is 666. And you can’t definitely have a business these days without a web site WWW, then we have the video surveillance and last but not least the micro chipping coming up. The micro chipping will be the ultimate Mark of the Beast and will put us fully in the hands of Satan and his evil controllers ready for Armageddon against the Messiah. So we need to rebel before that to help the coming back of the real Messiah.”

I’m pleased to say that we here at Spottings elected to eschew the use of “www.” on our URI. It’s been a growing trend lately on websites and clearly it’s a positive sign that we’re pushing back the darkness.

Mongabay.com => Scientists search for Mongolian Death Worm – Attempt to confirm existence of legendary beast

A group of English scientists are spending a month in the Gobi desert in search of the Mongolian Death Worm, a fabled creature said to lurk in the sands of the hostile region. The three to five feet long long creature is known to the locals as Allghoi khorkhoi, Mongolian for intestine worm because it is reported to look like the intestine of a cow. Mongolian nomads have made extraordinary claims about the animal, reporting that the death worm can spit a corrosive yellow saliva that acts like acid and that they have the ability to generate blasts of electricity powerful enough to kill a full grown camel.

I’m afraid this report is a little out of date, being from 2005 I’ll try to find some follow up info. I think I would have heard if they’d found.

I do have some recollection of an expedition finding a “Mongolian Hurts-Your-Real_Bad Worm” last year. Perhaps it’s the same animal just not as fearsome as legend would have it.

ThothWeb – Your Portal to the Unknown => FM radio gives away aliens

From ThothWeb – Your Portal to the Unknown:

If aliens tens of light-years away have radar and FM radio, we may finally be able to hear them. Scientists say piggybacking detection software onto new radio telescopes designed primarily to observe the early universe could allow astronomers to eavesdrop on everyday sounds from distant, Earth-like civilisations.

I can hear the jingle now, “You’re listen to WKRP from Arcturus…”

ThothWeb – Your Portal to the Unknown => Anomalous ruins found in Peruvian jungle

From ThothWeb – Your Portal to the Unknown:

An unusual archaeological site discovered in Peru’s mountains may hold clues to the history of the Chachapoya people, known as “cloud warriors,” who fought the Inca Empire before the Spanish conquest.

Keith Muscutt, a British-born Chachapoya researcher with the University of California at Santa Cruz, said Wednesday that structures found at the site were “strikingly anomalous” because of their size, shape and remote location in the dense forest full of spider monkeys and toucans.

The unfortified, possibly ceremonial structures are located in an area previously considered on the periphery of the Chachapoya domain in the upper Amazon region. “What it is showing is that we don’t really know what their territory was,” he told Reuters.

From Supernatural News:

From theconservativevoice.com: After all these centuries, Zeus may have a few thunderbolts left. A tiny group of worshippers plans a rare ceremony Sunday to honor the ancient Greek gods, at Athens’ 1,800-year-old Temple of Olympian Zeus.

Equal time for all gods, I say.
